Canadian shoe maven Ron White is opening a new store in Leaside, bringing his shoe collection to the Toronto neighbourhood. Fresh off his international shoe tour that started in California and culminated with Holts appearances in Edmonton and Montreal, Ron White continues his high-energy pace with the opening of his fifth bricks and mortar boutique in Leaside.
With over 20 years of experience in the shoe industry, Ron has exclusive wholesale partnerships with Holt Renfrew, Kleinfeld and Hudson’s Bay as well as Zappos and a number of leading US independent retailers. With his own retail locations inside the Manulife Centre, Sherway Gardens and Bayview Village, the new Leaside store joins his downtown Oakville boutique as a street-front destination.
I opened my first Ron White store in Toronto on Yonge Street in the spring of 1993. After more than two decades in the shoe business and four unique collections, it is a thrill to be opening a new store just a stones throw away on the south Bayview strip in Leaside,
said Ron White, CEO and Creative Director of Ron White Shoes.
The new Ron White store opens Saturday May 23, 2015 at 1553 Bayview Avenue just south of Eglinton.
